VJ Books Presents Author Greg Rucka!

Greg RuckaGreg Rucka, born November 1969, is an American comic book writer and novelist. Rucka was born in San Francisco, California and raised on the Central Coast of California, in what is commonly referred to as "Steinbeck Country." He began his writing career in earnest at the age of 10 by winning a county-wide short-story contest, and hasn't let up since. He graduated from Vassar College with an A.B. in English, and from the University of Southern California's Master of Professional Writing Program with an M.P.W.

He is the author of nearly a dozen novels, six featuring bodyguard Atticus Kodiak, and two featuring Tara Chace, the protagonist of his Queen & Country series. Additionally, he has penned several short-stories, countless comics, and the occasional non-fiction essay. In comics, he has had the opportunity to write stories featuring some of the world's best-known characters‹Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman‹as well as penning several creator-owned properties himself, such as Whiteout and Queen & Country, both published by Oni Press. His work has been optioned several times over, and his services are in high-demand in a variety of creative fields as a story-doctor and creative consultant.

Rucka's work, particularly in comics, has attracted critical and fan acclaim, and has also won several awards, including Eisner Awards for the "Half a Life" storyline in Gotham Central (for which he also won a Harvey Award), Whiteout: Melt and Queen and Country. He was also featured in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation comic book miniseries "Dying in the Gutters" as the accidental killer of a comics gossip columnist while intending to kill Joe Quesada over his perceived role in the ending of Gotham Central.

Greg resides in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, author Jennifer Van Meter, and his two children. He thinks the biggest problem with the world is that people aren't paying enough attention.
